BS EN 10083-1:2006

Steels for quenching and tempering. General technical delivery conditions

Status : Current   Published : August 2006



If you specify, purchase or supply steel, BS EN 10083-1:2006 has been developed by technical experts as an invaluable to guide to the standard purchase specifications and delivery conditions of semi-finished, hot formed products such as:

  • blooms
  • billets
  • slabs
  • bars
  • rod
  • wide flats
  • hot-rolled strip and sheet/plate
  • forgings.

BS EN 10083-1:2006 should be read in conjunction with BSEN 10083-2:2006 and BS EN 10083-3:2006.

The standard does not cover bright steel products (see BS EN 10277 series) or continuously cast semi-finished products for which special arrangements must be made.

BS EN 10083-1:2006 concentrates on the general supply conditions; the detailed specifications of the steels themselves being defined in part 2 (non-alloy steels) and part 3 (alloy steels).

The steels are generally intended for the manufacture of quenched and tempered, flame or induction hardened machine parts, but alternatively may be supplied in the normalized condition.
